    I worked at Cerner full-time

    Pros

    Define your future. Choose your path. Friendly to helping staff locate their optimum position within the company. Very fluid company culture.

    Cons

    Demand on time is high. Work life balance can be challenging. Nevertheless, a great opportunity for entering the consulting field and getting trained quickly in the real world.

    I worked at Cerner as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Had a lot of great learning opportunities for all the interns at the company including hackathons, baseball games, trivia, and a bunch of other fun activities. Projects are a lot of fun (at least mine was) and I actually felt like I was working on something meaningful

    Cons

    Getting started was very slow. Making sure you had all the right equipment and access rights took a couple of weeks so you struggle to find things to do during the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be prepared for incoming interns, make sure to have all their access rights and equipment ready on day one so they can get to work immediately

    Pros

    Great co-workers
    Consistently challenged to learn more and excel
    No day is the same

    Cons

    There are times where you have to spread your wings and fly before you feel you are ready. This can be good or bad, just depends on the situation, but it does cause a bit of anxiety/stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage your reports to attend training sessions either internally or externally. The information absorbed and the networking opportunity is invaluable.

    Pros

    Everyone I've met has been very supportive and accommodating. I can call up any of my co-workers with a question and they would be willing to help. My manager is outstanding and works hard to coach me in advancing my career.

    Cons

    You have to teach yourself a lot. Training is provided, but there is so much more that you need to know. The resources are out there, but you must make the effort and take the time to find them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing the right thing. I have seen great strides in the availability of resources and support. I know we are moving in the right direction.
